There’s nothing that will give you more ease as a performer than performance experience. And as musicians, we’re all striving for ease performing! Take the opportunity to practice your performance skills and receive coaching from our world-class MSCM musicians by participating in a Masterclass this summer. All students will receive thirty minutes of one-on-one coaching with a MSCM musician. Each coaching session will address your own particular needs–technical, musical, performance oriented, or all of the above.
The Masterclasses are special opportunities open only to a select few performing students and open to the public to observe. If you would like to perform in a Masterclass, please send a short, recent, video or recording of your playing along with your private teacher’s name and contact information.
